Educating girls for a technological future

In 1989 our school was designated a technology high school. Since then, we have consistently embraced the use of technology for teaching and learning. Our vision is to 'Educate girls for a technological future.'

Bring your own device (BYOD) initiative

In 2011, our school identified the need for students to have increased access to technology. To address this, we introduced a bring your own device (BYOD) policy. This policy has has become an integral part of our school’s practice. Students from Years 7 to 12 now have 1:1 access to technology through the integration of iPads for learning. This initiative aligns with our school plan to:

  • make learning relevant
  • inspire creativity
  • enhance collaboration
  • enable every learner to be a creator who believes their work matters.

Our choice of the Apple platform is a testament to our commitment to excellence. As an Apple distinguished school, we use Apple's technology to inspire, imagine, and impact teaching and learning. This makes learning more engaging and fosters collaboration among students and teachers. Learn more about Apple distinguished schools.

Apple iPad integration and parental support

Parents and carers are encouraged to purchase iPads for their child to use at school. iPads and other necessary Apple equipment can be purchased from any appropriate retail outlet or supplier. To support this transition, we conduct parent information sessions focused on technology use. These sessions cover essential topics, including:
